1 principle every entrepreneur can use to make better decisions

"A business will make money in a down market and collect it in an up market"

Running a business isn't easy. Every day there are challenges, opportunities, tasks and issues that all contribute to where a business finds itself at any given time. To help get through the daily grind an entrepreneur will use business coaches, consultants, webinars, training sessions and many other tools to ensure they are building their business properly. While these tools are very helpful there are certain principles that an entrepreneur can follow to guide their efforts each day. One of those principles is understanding what your business is fundamentally trying to do each day - is it learning how to make money or is it collecting money and reinvesting the results? This may seem like a strange concept but your ability to understand it can have a profound change in how you approach the daily grind of your business.

Be #1 or go do something else

Be number one in your market or go and do something else because your business will only be as good as everyone else's which means it will not be as profitable as it should or could be. Learn from the examples of Fitbit and GoPro who both had leadership market positions and now are struggling to keep up with their competition.
